Default Pics of your 1/10 scale 4wd brushless lipo setup

Just as the title says, post your pics and specifics on your setup. Also your thoughts on how you like it, and any issues.

Also, your charging precautions you take!

Thanks!

I was just thinking about this lastnight. Do they make a saddle pack version? I would like to see for my XX4.
Thanks

What kind of runtime for the 8?

Also where did you get the conversion parts?

Wow, I would love to see that converted Losi 8 in action. Yeah, what's the run time and are you able to keep up with the nitro's on the straightaway?

I don't know for sure what the runtime is like on the XX4... I never really paid attention but it seems that it would only charge back about 2500mah after a race? I promise I will check it next time so I know

If you don't already have a system, I would recomend the 6900kv for a small high bite track just because I think it would be more than you ever need. The 7700 is great but it runs hot when the track is super tacky.. but I have not messed with gearing much. I'm sure I could find a better gear. If the track is big I guess go for the 7700 and hang on.

There you go... short clip of the 8ight in action

The parts are homemade but I'm working on having some CNC motor mounts done as we speak. They should be pimp!... and I can get them for anyone who wants one.

I do know about runtime on the 8ight at least for the track in the video above... believe it or not I get over 25 minutes on a 4s 5000mah pack!!!! That's right... runtime ranges from 170-230mah per minute depending on the motor/gearing combo I run.

I finished a 30 minute race including 2 minute warm up last week and it charged back 5448mah on my 8000mah pack.

That is awesome. Must be nice to be the "special" one that doesn't have to worry about tuning, glowplugs and such. hehe. I think if someone came up with a conversion kit for a cheap 1/8 scale buggy. I'd probably do it. Since its just club racing, I guess not too many mind that you are running electric instead of nitro with them.

Thanks for posting that. That is just great. So that looks like that setup can keep up with those high dollar .21 motors as well? Didn't seem like anyone could catch you.

From what I have been hearing usually the 1/8 scale electric setup for the time it is ran usually has an advantage over nitro. No pit stops, instant on acceleration, etc.

What are the charge methods you are using for your lipos and do you take any special precautions when charging? (charge in a grille, etc)
